Aspen, CO 81611, USA
Aspen and Snowmass have some great cross country trails. But for a real experience, head 11 miles outside of Aspen to the base of the Elk Mountain range to the Ashcroft Ski area. Groomed and un-groomed trails are endless. After a full morning of...

1280 Ute Ave, Aspen, CO 81611, USA
I wouldn’t recommend doing the Ute Trail hike on your first day in Aspen, especially if you come from sea level, but it is definitely a must see. Known as one of the harder hikes in Aspen, it is short but sweet. You traverse up the side of Aspen...

My morning routine in Aspen always starts with a run along the Rio Grande Trail. The trail is easily accessed from downtown and stretches 41 miles between Aspen and Glenwood Springs with an elevation change of 2,120 feet. It used to be an old...

W Hyman Ave, Aspen, CO 81611, USA
On the walking mall, on the corner of Hyman Avenue and Mill Street, there is a dancing water fountain where the children endlessly play in the symphonic pattern of the water spraying into the air. The fountain was created in 1979 by a local...

315 E Dean St, Aspen, CO 81611, USA
Remede spa is hands down the best spa in town. Make sure you get there with ample time before your appointment (and don't forget a bathing suit) so you can enjoy all the amenities—the pool and massaging waterfalls in particular. Let the...
